We are particularly interested in the analysis of individual as well as collective behaviour and decisions that lead to change, or adapt and even resist to change at the level of individuals, groups, industries, regions and countries. Our major concerns are the dynamics of these behaviours and/or decisions and their interrelatedness, as well as the underlying, often feedback driven, mechanisms of change. We investigate these phenomena from different disciplinary angles, which taken together provide a better understanding of social and economic change. Methods include analytical models, controlled experiments, empirical and field studies and historical investigations.

From applicants we expect a sustained research interest in one of the following four
interdisciplinary research areas:

  • Responses to accelerated change
  • Innovation as intended change
  • Changing social and economic contexts and changing identities
  • Change across the lifespan

For further information on the research programme as well as on the application requirements please visit www.gsbc.uni-jena.de.
Fellowships start any time (Deadline for application: September 30th, 2009). All fellowships include funding for two years. The language of the GSBC is English. The job advertisements and the application form are available at http://www.gsbc.uni-jena.de/index.php?id=9. For further questions please contact Kristina von Rhein: [email protected].

    I want to know if there is any scholarship for Criminal Justice or criminology student ? I hold a BA in Criminal Justice Administration. I am looking for a scholarship from the field mention above, in any English speaking country.

  4. I have been in education as professor in communication at Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale, Virginia and George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. I earned a BA in communication, an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies with course work in Human Resources and a Doctor of Arts in community college education with concentration in communication instruction. All three degrees where self supported and earned at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. I am in process of adding to my “people skills” a Doctor of Education degree with course work in Pastoral Community Counseling with Argosy University. My disclosure is that I owe too much on past school loans and would like financial assistance to continue my studies and my studies with competencies in communication, education, training and development, counseling and religion. If the limitation of financing is resolved, many uncertainties will be removed and I will be a happy man while I continue my 22 years as an educator. I thank you kindly for your time and consideration.

    Respectfully yours,

    Alusine M. Kanu DA
